reread all of my posts in this thread. i don't see how anybody would think that i was trying to pass of my personal opinion as fact(s) unless they skimmed my posts.

since i know that you probably won't do that, i've done it for you:

post 1, speaking about NC and VA:

if anybody here thought i was trying to pass off my opinion about VA being better than NC as fact after reading the bolded words, which are included in each of the posts in this thread, then they need to learn the concept of reading comprehension.
Actually, when you said that NoVA offers more than NC, that's not an opinion; that's a statement of fact. You just tried to use the "That's just my opinion" line to exclude such an inaccurate statement from scrutiny. One can actually list every type of amenity and attribute that each has and come to a factual conclusion on the matter. In doing so, your statement would be deemed to be incorrect. Declaring which is "better" or which one you like more is an opinion, but that's not what you said in your previous post.

Plus you have the NYC, which I hear is great to visit even though I've hardly been there...
Burlington seems to be similar to Lockport.

You should check out Winston-Salem. It has a rather interesting history and urban fabric. In some places, it looks like a Rust Belt city. It also has Old Salem, which is a very well preserved historic area. Great photo thread of the downtown area can be found here.

If this is going to turn into a VA NC argument, the DC metro has to come into play as places like Arlington and Alexandria are there.
Yes, but none of the amenities that were mentioned have a presence in Arlington and Alexandria. Truth is, aside from the Metro, NoVA is just a cross between Charlotte (tons of office space, fair share of sprawl, malls), Raleigh (hi-tech economy, high educational attainment, malls, sprawl), and New Bern (colonial town like Arlington and Alexandria).
Nah, NoVa is more of a cross between central/north jersey (having to cross a river to get into a big city/demographics/ethnic diversity, dense web of suburbs connected by transit, traffic congestion) and raleigh (strip malls, sprawl, high educational attainment, hi-tech)

its not my fault that you got something out of my posts that i didn't say and that i didn't imply.

i specifically stated, MULTIPLE TIMES that it was my personal opinion.

learn to comprehend what you read.

mountains


great lakes


thousand islands


long island


the hamptons


erie canal


niagara falls


finger lakes


letchworth




hudson


lake placid



Just wanted to comment on how much I love these pics. Seems a lot of people don't often realize how scenic NYS really is!

Winston-Salem often gets lumped in with Greensboro, but they are two very different cities. W-S has much more to offer overall.

Great photo thread!

Sorry, every statement doesn't count as an opinion just because you tack "just my opinion" at the end. Maybe you should learn the definition of a word before you use it.
